1977-1995 - 101 Shows. Some say too many, some say not enough. All on the east coast, but for two in Indiana, one in Chicago, and my last two in Alabama in 1995. Skipped RFK that summer. Hated that place. Ticket stubs is how I kept track. Most I can't remember... When I found the archive in early '05, the first thing I did was get every show I attended. Now I kinda remember. :)

My 'link' is of course only the ones I have proof of being at. I attended other shows just not sure which ones - I attended shows from Fall 79 through Summer 87 or 89 all in Northeast except for a road trip down to RFK to see Jerry leave the show due to excessive heat - After that it was the Bob & Bobby show, not the most memorable. Read about Jerry going into coma a few days later - sad days indeed.

1979-1994

No idea exactly how many, but can safely say more than 60, no more than 75.

Most on East coast, most (by far) at Nassau Coliseum.

First show: 1/11/79, Nassau (first & only Keith & Donna show I ever saw)
Last show: Highgate, VT., summer of 1994

First song: Sugaree
Last song: US Blues

Highlight shows:
First one;
Alpine Valley 7/17-19/89;
Hampton, VA., 1986--breakout of first Box of Rain in 14 years;
MSG, 1983, breakout of first St. Stephen in 5 years; 3/29/90, Nassau, Branford Marsalis on sax;
5/6/81, Nassau, a show that became a Dicks Picks selection and for good reason;
April, 1987, Irvine Meadows, First and only CA. shows I ever saw.
